Human Resources & Recruitment
We recruiting a HR & Training Assistant into our flagship-manufacturing site in Hull and we’re so excited!
The role will work closely with the HR Manager and HR Partner on a range of HR and safety related activities and in addition will work specifically on training activities with the Operations Management on site. This is a very good opportunity for someone wanting to gain practical experience within a busy manufacturing and distribution organisation.
You will take on the general day-to-day HR administration of all four sites and what is now, a 320-employee business. You will be involved in all aspects of administration of the full employee cycle from recruitment interview coordination to exiting employee’s on payroll and conducting their exit interview (and all that is in between!)
Whilst this generalist role will support the HR function, it will support the Production Management with an ongoing training project, implementing solid training processes and systems into the Hull site. From organising fun packed inductions and safety training programmes, to maintaining the complex training matrixes in line with operational requirements, you will certainly gain a lot of exposure to all areas of the business.
Payroll and time and attendance elements of this role will also be your responsibility in the future, once you have embedded into the business, and the HR function has several projects which will keep some of the mundane aspects of this role more interesting to set you up for a career in HR. From employee engagement activities and cultural behaviour training to supporting the succession planning of the future, it is safe to say, you will be kept busy!
What ‘wood’ our ideal candidate be like?
Your skills and qualifications should include:
- A university degree would be advantageous but not essential. Business Management / HR would be preferred.
- Some practical work experience, ideally in a HR, training, safety, recruitment, general administration related role or project.
- A competent IT capability, specifically with Excel is essential. Knowledge of training matrix management would be advantageous.
- Experience of producing corporate presentations using Microsoft PowerPoint, Excel and Word.
- Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
Being at the beginning of your HR career, you will be able to listen and learn but use your professional integrity to make recommendations to improve our ways of working. Getting your sleeves “rolled up” and “stuck in” to the role will be your normal way of working. The HR function prides itself on authenticity, honesty and making a difference so we are looking for someone who possesses a natural positive influence on others to improve the world around them.
You will be fully supported by the HR function and Site Operational Management; however the role is not situated within the HR function based in Stoke, so you must be motivated and able to work autonomously.
Whilst we do not expect this role to be required on other sites, a willingness to travel to the head office Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire would be ideal and you ideally live within an hour of Melton, Hull.
In return, we will provide you with a work environment, which is fun, fast paced and nice to work in as well as a competitive package between £20k to £25k + pension contributions of up to 10% of your salary. We offer Life Assurance and 33 days annual leave including bank holidays, as well as exclusive access to a discount and cashback scheme giving you the opportunity to save money from hundreds of retailers and services throughout the UK.
This role is Monday to Friday 8am – 5pm with an early 4pm finish on a Friday.
